Allens' Employment practice is highly respected by key players in the market, with incredible bench strength. Our experienced team provides clients with the full spectrum of workplace relations services throughout Australia and Asia to help minimize workplace issues, protect corporate reputation and promote clients as employers of choice.

We advise clients on the full spectrum of employment, workplace relations and safety legal services, including employment contracts and policies, award compliance, enterprise bargaining and industrial dispute management, restructuring and redundancies, performance management, managing ill or injured employees, investigations, disciplinary action and termination of employment, consultancy agreements, restraint of trade and protecting confidential information, incentive and reward schemes, outsourcing and insourcing, transferring employees, discrimination and sexual harassment, bullying and work health and safety.

We understand that a specific legal solution is not always the best solution – it all depends on the organisation's business objectives. We place great importance on getting to know our clients and their specific business needs in order to formulate the best course of action.

Our trained and accredited mediators can also negotiate union demands and pursue industrial hearings to deal with strikes, bans and picket lines. However, where litigation is unavoidable, our experienced lawyers act promptly to defend clients' interests in court.
